LS Speaker to Congress: Give examples of communal violence, don't make general statements
Rubbishing accusations of partiality by the Congress, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Wednesday said that people should first give examples of specific incidents of communal violence, and not make general statements.
"People should first give examples of specific incidents of communal violence, and don't make general statements," said Mahajan.
Earlier today, uproar prevailed in the Lok Sabha, as the Congress Party demanded a debate on rising incidents of communal violence across the country through an adjournment motion.
Leader of the Congress Party in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, party MP MI Shahnawaz and party whip K C Venugopal demanded the discussion on the issue, failing which they would seek suspension of Question Hour for taking up the adjournment motion.
Congress members of the Lower House were seen pressing Sumitra Mahajan to suspend the Question Hour, so that a debate on rising communal tension in various parts of the country could be initiated.
The demand was made in the wake of heightened tension arising out of the gang rape of a woman and her forcible conversion in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh.
